Session Description:   High-throughput sequencing has enabled applications for understanding genomic alterations and aberrant expression in human cancers. Numerous computational methods have been developed to comprehensively analyze the rapidly increasing cancer genomics data thereby maximizing the discovery, interpretation, and prioritization of critical altered genes and pathways. This session will focus on methods for transcriptome and whole genome sequence analysis by highlighting current approaches, data analysis issues, and application to cancer research.
